College presents a county celebration

A CELEBRATION of all things Northumberland will take place next week.

Northumberland College’s Kirkley Hall campus near Ponteland will host the event on Thursday.

Visitors can find jewellery, gifts and jams and listen to Northumberland pipers and a folk band.

There will be stalls where people can get advice on everything from pet care to gardening, or see floristry demonstrations. It is also the opening of a 130m zip wire.

Various food stalls will be available, including a Northumberland barbecue and cream teas.

Entry includes guided tours of Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens, where there is the chance to meet some of the animals.

The event runs from 4pm to 9pm. Admission is £4, free for children aged ten and under.
